Vivian Green and Eric Roberson

R&B / Soul


As a child, Vivian Green was classically trained in piano and vocals in her native Philadelphia. She started her career early expanding her vocal range by covering Celine Dion, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer and Aretha Franklin at jazz clubs and weddings. Meanwhile, she honed her songwriting skills by composing throughout her teens. In 1997, she earned her first songwriting credit for Boyz II Men’s “Dear God”.

In 2002, Green released her “A Love Story” on Sony Music, which featured the hit “Emotional Rollercoaster”. Green made her film debut a year later as Billie Holiday in the Oscar nominated “De-Lovely”. She followed up the film role with a spot on the TV series “American Dreams”. Her second album “Vivian” spawned the number one dance single “Gotta Go, Gotta Leave”.

Her latest album, “Beautiful”, delivers contemporary R&B with a classic soul edge. Green says this of her passion project: “This record absolutely feels like it’s more mine than anything I’ve done before.”

Eric Roberson was a talented youngster – he acted, sang and won a scholarship to Howard University through the Mr. Black Teen Universe pageant. In 1994, Warner Bros released his first single “The Moon” while Roberson completed his Musical Theatre studies at Howard University. After graduating, he landed a songwriting deal through EMI and collaborated with Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Meanwhile, he continued to work on his projects with songs ranging from soulful funk to R&B.

In 2001, Roberson set up his own record label and independently released his first album “Esoteric Movement” which he has followed up with five further studio albums. His most recent release, “Music Fan First” was released in 2009.

“Green has one up on her hero, Barbra Streisand–she writes her own songs, credibly draws on the rich tapestry of gospel and R&B, and she can play.” – Kim Hughes
